    It honestly feels like people now are being a lot more generous in surprise trades. It might be because it’s becoming easier to get shinies, which is in no way a bad thing, but I’ve noticed more non hacked shiny Pokémon, and just really good late game Pokémon being traded in this generation than in previous generations. It’s really nice to see people helping strangers out with filling out the Pokédex, even if it’s just because they have extras. I remember when people would just release the extra Pokémon and it always made younger me feel a little sad.

    • Smudged
      Smudged 13 днів тому +1

      @Henry Drozda Simply owning them? From what I've gathered, no. But if you decide to use them in competitive, then there's a problem. If you ever feel like your account will be threatened by owning one though, then you can always simply release the pokemon.

      @Smudged Interesting. Thanks for the info m8.

    • Smudged
      Smudged Місяць тому +5

      @H D Usually hacks are pretty obvious. 6IV shiny hidden ability rare pokemon with a website name are commonplace with hacked pokemon. There are some more subtle ones, but generally hacked pokemon look too good to be true. As for "invalid" I've actually been capitalizing off of a hacked Ditto that was surprise traded to me. All of the offspring have been legitimate with my name and ID on it, so you should be fine.

    I enjoyed this video. I saw the title and was like "Well Obviously the answer is yes." And then Mikey said that he didn't want to waste hours upon hours of his life randomly trading and I just laughed because yeah, that is EXACTLY how I wasted a summer when I got OmegaRuby to complete the dex. I can imagine completing the paldean dex is going to be time consuming this way.

    • Yuki Kitsune
      Yuki Kitsune Місяць тому +1

      @Damien Earl some minor differences. like you can't do anything while waiting for your trade which is why it took me a whole summer to complete the dex. However because I do not care about whether or not the pokemon I get are hacked or not, I just found a twitch account that trades out hacks and you can try and match up with them to get what you want.

    When referring to the "johtoian" Wooper or any Pokemon form that isn't the regional variant, we should be saying the "National Form"
    Cause if you catch one in SInnoh, its not exactly Johtonian - it has nothing to do with Johto, but it is in that form nationally except for specific regions, which have the other form

    Great video! This brought back a lot of memories. I did something similar to this back in Pokemon X, where I traded away my breeding leftovers to try and get a living dex of unique trainer numbers (minus legendaries of course). I forget how far I got, maybe a little over halfway, before I got bored with it (and frustrated from getting a bajillion Zubats and Bunnebys).

    This was actually really fun and fascinating as I had a similar experience. I wanted to start my playthrough with a shiny Sprigatito and bred with a Lechonk, surprise trading the breedjects. I got so many new 'mons, including a foreign Ditto, and got ~100 dex entries in 162 trades. Also, with the special raid pokemon, if you're like me and suck at doing raids, just wait a few hours after the raid starts and do some trades. I got 5 Froakie the day the Greninja raid started!

I did end up picking up a Website Shiny, though... And my friend and I ended up matching for a trade, which was hilarious given the odds of that happening.

I wish you good luck with your future surprise trades and I hope i get some more good pokemon amongst the duplicates...lol

    “Without evolving” how does that work for Gangar/regular trade evolutions (don’t need a specific item, be traded with a certain Pokémon, etc.)? From what we see in the video you got two Haunters that evolved after being traded. Would that count as two entries or one?

    Man my first and only shiny was an Impidimp at least in this game. I didn't use it on my team since I already planned it out before then, and would've had three dark types and potentially two fairy types anyway, but since I basically never used my main team for any of the Team Star bases, I used him for the fighting base. I also got that without a shiny charm, though since I don't have NSO, or friends, getting that is never gonna happen anyway.

      @mirage I don’t know much about them myself, but I’ll do my best to explain. “Website or hacked shinies” to my understanding are Pokémon that come from websites that place them into the games through outside means such as modded consoles or computers. They often have perfect IV’s and natures and tend to be named a specific nickname after the website. Although they may not always be nicknamed that. Sometimes they’re easy to spot. Other times, they’re a lot better hidden. The reason these are bad are they were put into the game illegitimately and can sometimes be considered illegal. (Not like breaking the law illegal, but illegal in terms of competitive battling.) They are also considered illegal if they are shinies that cannot be normally obtained like the GEN 9 legends since those are shiny-locked in-game.

    My first playthrough starting from launch day was a surprise trade nuzlocke that i further limited to just gen 9 pokemon, re-trading each catch till i got something new. By the end of the first box it took like 45 min of repeat re-trading for each catch, so lessened the limit to any non-repeat at that point. Still ended up in the repeat loop like a box and a half later, but by that point i had caught something in just about every location and about finished the story so nuzlocke was basically over anyway. Following that stricter ruleset, though factoring in the varied catches along the way for trade fodder, i also ended up with about 70-ish percent dex completion after evolution/breeding, it just took longer lol.

    Wow, never expected to end up on here. Thanks for the lechonk. Sorry the scorbunny didn't help, or if you ended up with a bunch of my starters. Just trying to help people who can't get them other ways.
    Great vid!

    I’m honestly amazed this is your first full odds shiny in SV. I’ve been just drowning in them without even looking for them. Is John draining your shiny luck or something? Because his shiny luck is insane!

    I can't even get just the Scarlet exclusives from many many attempts at surprise trade but I've sent a lot of amazing stat froakies out into the world after finally getting a Greninja and breeding it like mad so that's something 🤣. I appreciate having been traded charmanders and scorbunnys though I missed those raids. Plus the other starters. My best is probably the random spiritomb I got traded. Not come across one in game and no idea where to do so, so that was lucky 🤣

    I feel really bad about an experience- I was just surprised trading a little early game, expecting nothing as the previous generations hadn't been the most diverse in pokémon.
    I got iron jugulis, And it seems authentic- I don't know what to do I feel really bad hahahahaha because they received a flittle

    My first 2 shinies were Lechonk. My third was me breeding charmanders with the Masuda method and it was like the 6th charmander I hatched and haven't had one since.

      my first 2 shinys in scarlet and violet were iron bundle and cetoddle, my third was a shiny slither wing that someone traded me and it seems to be legit (it doesn't have perfect ivs and it has a bad nature) and my fourth was a shiny frookie that I hatched
